‘I wished to tell the truth’: Anne Bronte, an Introduction

One-off Wednesday Talk

This is a past event.

One-off Wednesday Talk

Anne Brontë was the youngest Brontë sibling, and is arguably the least well-known and appreciated of the Brontë sisters. In 2020, the Brontë Parsonage Museum celebrated the 200th anniversary of her birth, and we were really looking forward to having the opportunity to shed some light on the youngest Brontë. Unfortunately our new exhibition on Anne had been open for just six weeks before the museum had to close due to Covid. We didn’t get to celebrate her life as extensively- so this month's talk focuses on an overview of Anne’s life, and what makes her literary work different. Anne is often considered to be the lesser talent amongst the three sisters, but is this unjustified?

Join us for a One-off Wednesday Talk (usually on Thursdays). Our Talks are delivered by our knowledgeable Parsonage staff. This year we will be delivering them in person at the Parsonage, and online for anyone who can't make it to the Museum. Details on how to join are below.
This One-Off Wednesday Talk will take place at 2pm on Wednesday 18th May.

Tickets are free with admission to the museum, and will take place in the Old School Room.
